My Favorite Musician Doesn't Read Music
What is See it, Say it, Play it?
An organic system to learn the music language.
Reading music, especially sight-reading, is just like reading words.
You’re not seeing it for the first time, you’re recalling words you already know.
For example, if you read a magazine while checking out at the grocery store -that’s sight-reading. Right?
But you aren’t really sight-reading. You know those words. You have a vocabulary.
You’ve read it all before.
Music notation works the same way.
- I teach you to SEE/Recall Music Notes in context.
- SAY it (speak the rhythm correctly – just like you would play it).
- And PLAY it in real time, in real music, on a real instrument.
But if all you’ve ever done is memorize terms, all you will ever do is perform very slowly and mechanically. That’s all you know.
Instead, a learning system should prepare you to create music… not block you.
You mentally “see” it – without guessing. You can “say” it because you know the vocabulary. You can then play/perform in context.
Here’s the Truth:
Memorizing symbols isn’t reading music. It’s just memorizing symbols.
SSP (See it, Say it, Play it) stacks your visual, aural and motor skills. Seriously, it’s a huge advantage to your musicianship and skills.
